Covent Garden’s ‘Sneaking into Fashion’ exhibit tracks the development of footwear over the past 100 years. Trainer’s have been particularly central to pop cultural fashion statements, influencing the development of music, art and even technology.

This sportswear review documents shoes from the Kill Bill film, the Nike Zoom Victory Elite Spikes series, the Jeffrey Campbell Ascension Sneaker set and the Buffalo Wedged Trainers from The Spice Girls Collection.

The displayed pieces are quite nostalgic for anyone familiar with film, athletic apparel and recording artists. Many have come to associate their favorite celebrities with apparel, and shoes are essential to that association. Of particular interest to the show’s viewers are Beyonce’s Isabel Marant high-top wedges and Kanye West’s 2012 Nike Yeezy II’s. Stats for Historic Sneaker Exhibitions Trending: Older & Buzzing
